|Stuff I like... yeah|
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
For one year and a few weeks, I believe I made my account june or july last year. But before having an account here, I visited DA a lot of times because of research and inspiration.
What does your username mean?
The name "Draco" has been my pseudonym/nickname in online-things since I have a computer and even before that, I loved that name. It has nothing to do with Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter (Really not a Potter-fan) but origins from the Dragon Draco from the movie "Dragonheart". That was my very favourite movie when I was a kid and I still love that character.
"Scatchmore" has two meanings: At first, Draco Scatchmore, just like Atano Scatchmore, the username of a very good friend of mine, is a steampunk character I developed for roleplaying and stuff. Also two years ago I started writing a steampunk adventure story and the main characters name is Draco Scatchmore too.
Describe yourself in three words.
"One strange artist"?
Are you left or right handed?
Kind of both. I do most of the stuff with my right hand, but my brain seems to be more of a left-handed I do a lot of things with my left hand too.
What was your first deviation?
The first thing I submitted was a drawing of a steampunk-bird, it had mechanic wings, a small engine on the back and a simple blank tube as a head. I don't really remember how I got the idea, but I remember the purpose: It was the cover for a short comic I made for my girlfriend back then.
I called the bird "Blechdrossel" which is Tinthrottle in english. It's still one of my very favourite drawings I ever made and I don't even have it anymore...
What is your favourite type of art to create?
My very favourite thing is drawing and sketching with pencils, completely uncolored. But I also enjoy crafting and tinkering a lot, like all my little steampunk stuff and the things I create with leather...
Favourite type of drawing is something like this:
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Ouh damn, I'd love to be able to make music! Sometimes I'm writing songtexts with a good friend, but I'll never master an instrument I have... like... really no sense for rhythm or tact But I'd love to play drums, bass, violin or piano...
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Hmmm, mostly art from people who are a lot better at colors than I am
But I also love traditional sketches, photos and crafted stuff. Some examples:
Most of my favourite stuff is pretty dark and uncolored, somewhat noir style.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
There are a lot of them, but those who always inspire me and whose works I could look at forever are , , , , and of course, my biggest inspiration and Role Model
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Of course all of those I listed up above and a lot more The persons who inspire me, those I look up to, those who are my role models, those I got friends with during the time here...
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Well, to say someone impacted my LIFE is said too much. But some people have changed my drawing style because I learn from what I see here. The greatest impacts are Mavros Thanatos, Matt Barley and NanFe, I believe.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
A very soft pencil, like 6B, an eraser and my sketchbook. Or thick paper.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Most of the time I'm drawing sitting on my couch, my laptop in front of me with a youtube video or music running. Most of the inspiration comes when I'm either on the internet or when I'm outside my home, on holidays or something. But sitting in my dim room on a cozy couch with my favourite songs playing is all I need to draw
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Naaah... I'm not long enough on this page to have a favourite moment or memory... There are a few things that made me really happy, for example the first watcher or when a deviation got more than a hundred views. Also the contacts and a few friendships...
I love to draw and sketch in my sketchbook (which I always take with me), so the most things I'll upload will be rough sketches. I think I wont submit a lot of colorful pictures... for some reason I hate to paint and color my pictures |
Apart from my drawings I will upload some stuff emerged from my workbench, because I am a tinkerer and crafter, so there will be some Steampunk-Creations and stuff like that
